promises

through the years
the sun setting and the moon rising
those sleepless nights and weary days
i’ve met dragons and i’ve met princesses,
a fire burning in my core
nearly smothered from disappointments and anger
still on fire
i know who i am now
from the dried crystals on my face to the tight-lipped smile
from the young dreams of being an assassin to the grey hope of life
from the innocent hold of childhood to the freeing burdens of maturity
i look towards the rising sun
the horizon holds in it promises for the future
and i promise to make something of the life i have been given
satisfy myself and who i deem important
defying the odds and make it to the top
i’ll light up the night
and burn bright in the daylight
